In 1976, John and Phyllis Skurla founded Skurla's Cash Register Company in the basement of their house in Turnagain. Over the years, they grew and moved to various locations throughout Spenard, and have sold cash registers and point of sale systems to over 140 communities across the state of Alaska.
One of John's favorite sayings was - nothing is more permanent than change. It was this attitude that helped develop a company that started in the electronic cash register business and evolved to the full point of sale solution and payment provider they are today.
John always had a story ready to tell you and Phyllis always had a kind word to greet you with when you entered the office. John and Phyllis have since retired, but their spirit and business principles are still in practice today.
Their daughter, Lynn Skurla Perkins, runs the business today. She literally grew up in the cash register business - answering phones and programming cash registers during her high school years. Besides running the company, Lynn has also served on the Board of Directors of the Retail Solutions Provider Association, ultimately becoming the first woman to serve as Chairman of the Board.
The staff at Skurla's are all professionals - trained and certified in the Point of Sale and Payments industries. And we live right here in Alaska, still providing the same level of personal service as the founders of the company. Please stop by and visit us at our office at 524 W. International Airport Road in Anchorage. Or even better, join us for our BBQ/potluck on the last Friday of every month. We too have stories to tell and a kind word to greet you with.
